damn, yea that looks like my psu tazz, is there a reason why it cannot power it?? im a lil bit confussed on this one as it has 2 12volt rails....which im sure is what i needed right?? well ive been thinking of upgrading the psu anyhow as this one ENT silent haha, although i prefer ebay for psu's
so anyhow what kind of more info do you need?? i have the box and everything for this thing was brand new a few months back
Never heard of the unit and really dont know anything about it, The specs listed on that site leave me wondering enough that I wouldn't even consider it. Just because a manufacture states that their PSU is SLI - Ready or Certified, that doesn't mean that it actually is. There has been several instances where the consumer is miss led.
That unit doesn't state that it is 80+ certified which means it could have very poor efficiency (not saying that it does) when compared to todays units. I will again link you to NVIDIA's SLI listing for power supplies
. I would look through that list and see whats available from there. When it comes to power supplies, I try to stick with name brands that I know (specific OEMs as well). Sure there are many more units out there than what NVIDIA has listed there, that will easily handle the dual GT's. I ran dual G92 GTS's off of the Ultra X3 600, and off of the Bgears b-tarantula that I reviewed. Both units are of the same OEM and other than cosmetics and cabling, are basically the same. Right now the Corsair PSU's seem to bee the most common bang for the buck units I see people going for.
I wouldn't be afraid of trying out a Corsair HX620 unit on the setup. But a little more headroom would be nice.
i just read the side of both the 8800gt boxs!!! they say this....
400 watt power supply with a minumum of 26 AMPS on the 12volt rails!!!
so theres my problem now i just have to find a psu with 26 amps on each rail....anyone got any idea on a cheap one hm?? im on a tight budget right now lol
